In softball yes.. if first base is not occupied.... but it depends on baseball and softball and what leval you play at
every out at first base that occurs after a batter has hit the ball is a force out since the batter is required to advance to first base.
no i dont know about in baseball, but in fastpitch softball... the batter would be out
The perfect softball hit is when the batter is able to reach on base because of the hit. The perfect softball hit is also when you are able to advance the runner to the next base or have the runner get a score. Homerun
In order to reach base without making contact, a batter could draw a walk, get hit by a pitch, be intentionally walked, or reach first on a passed ball after a strike out (i.e., batter swings and misses, and catcher drops the ball, allowing the batter to reach first base, if first base is free). Without collecting a hit, a batter can also reach first on a fielding error or a fielder's choice, which means that a fielder decided to attempt a defensive play at a base other than first base, allowing the batter to reach first base. You missed a Wild Pitch - wild pitches and passed balls are scored separately.
It can be. A base hit is just when you hit the ball, and get on base without getting out.
In baseball or softball, when a batters hits the ball and makes it safely to third base it is called a triple.
Base on ball is also known as a walk. This occurs when the pitcher throws 4 balls to a batter. In this situation the batter gets to automatically advance to first base
batter is out, runners do not advance
Its just like baseball, 3 Strikes- Batter is out 4 Balls- Batter gets a free walk to first base
If it hits the ground then hits the batter then yes. If it just hits the ground then no.
In baseball, when the batter hits the ball, he has to run to first base. First base is when he is safe, where he can not be tagged out by the ball. You can also steal base :) i play 12u softball I am a gall
Every run produced must have a runner reach first base.
A safe hit is considered a hit that is not fielded and the batter makes it to first base without getting out.
there are 4 bases in softball, homeplate, first base, second base, third base...
base on balls, or hit by pitch.
It's a play where in the fielder throws the ball to 1st base to get the batter-runner out. This play is always done when there are no runners on base.
when theres a base runner on a base.. the batter hits the softball and trys to get to a base while the base runner at 3rd or 2nd run home and get a point
First base is the base you run to after you hit the ball.
